Problems with 65w light and mogul socket

  1. First post ever, so sorry in advance if i screw this up. I've recently started a 2 plant grow and bought
    This light
    And this power cord
    My understanding is that CFL's dont need a ballast, as many things with a mogul socket do. Anyway, I plug it in, light fits the socket perfectly, but nothing at all happens. Am I missing something obvious, got a defective cord maybe? Any help is appreciated
  2. I did the same thing a while back, invested like 60$ altogether and they just wouldn't work, I think ( and I may be wrong ) there are 2 types of big cfl's, self ballasted, and regular, I think we got the regular
    • Like Like x 1
  3. I think Boom is right, that's for a replacement bulb for a specific light fixture.
